Fashion and Design Nerd Nite @ Looking Glass Lounge Sun. 8pm

From an email:

We’re throwing a night of fashion and design talks (free and open to the public) this Sunday night at Looking Glass Lounge (3634 Georgia Ave NW.) Starts at 8.

Join us at Looking Glass Lounge (downstairs) for an evening of short lectures from DC’s most fashionable intelligentsia. Topics will include:

– “Kate in Slacks: Katharine Hepburn on the middle road” by Annie Strother, a writer and a production assistant at the PBS NewsHour.

– “How To Catapult Your Passion Into Your Vocation” by local fashion illustrator and stylist Lauren Friedman. Friedman is the creator of the website My Closet in Sketches and is a regular contributor for Lucky Magazine.

– Jessica K Pavone, of, discussing challenges to western tailoring, including silhouette conventions—vis-à-vis Japanese designers and Orthodox garb—and the underutilization of oversized possibilities.

– And Anna Wonson on the History Of Dressing Cats.

And more!
